i found mine by the ice box truck if you gotten that. idk if its all the same for everyone or not but after i got the ice box truck i started heading out and there she was. ooh it was such a lovely sight. so try that spot its in between Hollywood Blvd. and a street called Le Brea Ave. its on the top left of the map. it might help you it might not i'm not promising nothin, but its worth a check out. just drive up and down it a few times to see if you get different cars to come around if its not there right away

some cars are able to be found in an easy way. go to a car in the showroom and if it is grayed out press X on it and then proceed to loading up a case. load up the homicide desk and dont move. wait for your car to pass or look across the street in the parking lot. chances are it will come around. i used this method for about 30 cars and it works flawlessly

Im at 93 of 93 and missing The Cadillac Series 50, and the Cadillac Limosine, I've checked during the black caesar lot in that case other cases and free roam as well as other parking lots in the area including the one suggested on LaBrea and Harrison. please help

The tow truck however I found roaming around the southeast part of the city, I see a lot of them, dunno if that helps any

Update: I found the limo, right where it should have been across from the Black Caesar, reloading from the main menu, I dunno must be some luck involved

Update 2: somehow the limo didn't count have to find it again. BOO, this damn car achieve finally got it again still missing 1.

Update 3: got it finally. For any that have cases, I went into the vehicle showroom, hit x on the missing car and they either drove by or were parked as described in the guide. I really dont know if this made a difference, but I saw the suggestion on another thread and thought I would pass it along. (He suggested homicide free roam) Good luck

I still have to find:
2DR #10 Buick Custom

I have the Brady Games guide book in front of me, but some of the locations it gives for some vehicles is pretty shady. Any 100% accurate locations on any of these?

International Police Wagon - At the crime scene of "Studio Secretary Murder." from the location guide, worked for me. Otherwise It was one of the early cases, just have to get in one if you see it. I however have never seen one driving around

Update on the Plymouth...just read the wiki entry:

"If you do the street crime "Hot Property" on the Arson desk, you will chase a suspect in your car. Right when the chase starts, the criminal will cross a street and enter a parking lot. The parking lot has a Plymouth Special Deluxe Six."

While this wasn't the case for me, I DID actually run into the back of one on my way to the Street Crime for the third time. It looks WAY more common that I could even tell from the videos...I probably passed it a lot while searching for it.

FINALLY! Update on the Chevy Service Van...tried the method described here:

"Ok, guys, I've read on one of the other forums about a neat trick of getting your missing cars to spawn nearby.
First, from the menu enter Extras-> Vehicle Showdown and locate the missing car you want to find. Then press X.
After that go to Cases-> Homicide-> Free Roam
The desired car will either drive past you or be on the parking lot across the street"

While it didn't work exactly as described, it WAS in a parking lot a few blocks down. Again, it looked MUCH different than what I could gather from the YouTube vids (more like a regular car than a service van), so I guess the moral of the story is just get into ANYTHING that is close to what you're looking for.

Good Luck!

Try this during a case. The "free ride" mode didnīt work for me either.
"The Gas man" worked fine for me. Just drive around near center (that is what "downtown" means) of "Central".
Pontiac drivers seem to like it hot

Hi guys! I'm missing 3 cars: Lincoln Zephyr Touring, Pontiac Sedan Six and Hudson Super Six. If you found those, can you tell me where exactly, and what CD were you using? Thanks.
